In one of its latest events, AMD has demonstrated what the AMD Ryzen 3000 can do.
Although AMD has proven that the Ryzen 3000 on the MSI X570 Godlike motherboard exceeds 5,000 MHz at its maximum turbo frequency, it turns out that the frequency at which you can get the highest gaming performance is not the highest.
The memory performance of AMD's Ryzen processors has long been the subject of controversy, and AMD admitted that memory compatibility on first-generation processors was a major problem at the outset. Now we can easily say that there is no such problem.
High performance and compatibility issues have been significantly improved with Ryzen's next generation CPUs, and the X570 platform has proven that the fastest memory will not give you the best experience.
Speaking at the recent Ryzen 3000 event, Travis Kirsch gave information about memory performance. In his descriptions he used the following expressions:
"When you look at the maximum turbo frequency of memory, you can see that the MSI Godlike performs above 5 GHz. When you compare this to the first and second generation Ryzens, there is a terrible difference."
In addition to all this, Kirsch said that if you want to optimize the latency, you should set the maximum turbo frequency to 3,600 MHz CL 16 or below.
Stating that the most suitable frequency for games is 3.733 MHz, Kirsch said higher frequencies are possible. Of course, those who want higher frequencies above 5 GHz need to sacrifice raw memory latency.
